    Beginner skier_mt snow ski buddies

    Just got back into skiing after taking off a solid 10 yrs. back at it and I love it but dont rly have anyone my skill level to cruise with. Do a lot of you go skiing by urselves? Thinking if I had headphones Id be set for the day. Thoughts?

    I ski solo a lot. My husband no longer likes skiing Mt Snow (unless there are moguls or powder) and hasn't had a pass there in years. And my youngest is now 18 and does the park (definitely not skiing with Mom). I have my own business and a condo near the mountain so I can grab days here and there that family or friends can't. So - don't ski or ski solo. Solo it is!

    Headphones @Mount Snow ... Mostly cool, unless you're on Long John or Cascade/Canyon or even Snowdance at times, not a good idea.. too much commotion around you a good chunk of the time where you WANT your sense of hearing to help alert you to folks around you...

    Skiing solo more and more and definitely liking it.

    I realize that I'm much happier not having to take other skiers' agendas into consideration regarding my ski day. A better way to say it is now I ski where and when I want to and not based on other's preferences.

    pros:
    Skiing solo is a good thing. As others said no need to please anyone but yourself.
    Never have to wait and never feel rushed.
    Ski what trails and off what lifts you want.



    Cons:
    Skiing glades alone can be dangerous (I still do it though)
    Drinking alone is lonely and depressing
    Have to drive both ways every time.
